Patna: A case has been registered against Aam Aadmi Party National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur over his comment on people from Bihar getting free medical treatment in the national capital.
The case has been registered by advocate Sudhir Ojha which has been slated to be heard on October 23.
Praising the Delhi government’s health facilities, Kejriwal had said on Sunday that despite the massive expansion of public healthcare infrastructure in the capital, some hospitals still see some overcrowding.
“This is because people from across the country are coming to Delhi now to access our hospitals. Today, someone from Bihar can take a Rs 500 ticket to the capital, get free treatment in our hospitals and return happily. It is a matter of great pride and happiness for us that the people of the entire country are confident in Delhi Government hospitals,” the Chief Minister had said.
